“My thirteen Low Quality Spiritual Stones!”
Late at night, a howl of grief was heard from a tiny little stone house located at the Spirit Peak City’s western district.
There were no decorative items in this simple, crude stone house. However, on the wall beside the bed were several portraits. A single beauty was painted on all those portraits . A soft chested, tall beauty with an astonishing appearance. Her skin was white like snow. These portraits were all drawn brilliantly. The drawing was done so well that it appeared life-like. The gazes of that beauty seemed to be moving about, it was as if she had come out of the painting. Furthermore, those portraits were emitting a dim light and appeared as if they were extremely valuable. Merely, the chest area of these portraits were slightly grayish. It seemed as if they have been stained a bit.
Inside the stone house was a guy who was howling in grief as if his mother had died. He was wearing rough clothes. His appearance could be regarded as being not bad. It was precisely Wei Suo who had obtained two Rock Tailed Wall Lizard from the Yellow Dragon Mountain’s Yellow Sand Ravine not long ago.
The reason why Wei Suo was howling in grief was because earlier today, when he was selling a black striped ordinary White Marten cub as a Black Wind Marten cub at the city’s eastern district’s free market, he saw a guy who was wearing extremely ordinary clothes; appearing to be extremely simple and honest selling a black jade jar.
This black jade jar was pitch black and shining black light was emitting from it. The black light seemed extremely profound. There were many tiny little mysterious ancient marks on the black jade jar. From a single glance, the jade jar appeared like a powerful Magical Treasure.
After a series of offers and counteroffers, Wei Suo bought the black jade jar with thirteen Low Quality Spiritual Stones. When he was walking back, Wei Suo was extremely excited. That was because even the most ordinary Spiritual Level Magical Treasures were definitely worth more than thirteen Low Quality Spiritual Stones. However, while Wei Suo was walking back, it started raining. When he returned home and took out the jade jar from his pocket, the black jade jar had turned into a gray porcelain jar. The outer layer of the jar slipped off from the jar. It seemed like a layer of some sort of tree resin.
Even if it was fake, they should have at least use a real jade jar! Instead, it was made with a porcelain jar covered with a layer of some random layer that could be washed off just even rain water. This was truly too much of a scam. Even Wei Suo used black balsam nectar that was unable to be washed off on those ordinary White Martens.
What Wei Suo could not accept the most, was the fact that there were two lines of crack within this porcelain jar. Once the outer layer was washed off, these two cracks became visible.
However, these marks and writings on the porcelain jar that he couldn’t understand were not fake. Even if this thing was truly a Magical Treasure, it ought to be useless as it had two cracks on it. Furthermore, Wei Suo had also tried pouring his True Energy into it, submerging it in water, burning it with fire, and all kinds of other methods. (The only thing he didn’t do was peeing in it.) However, this damned thing had no reaction at all.
Wei Suo was not the same as that prodigal beauty at the Yellow Sand Ravine. For a low level cultivator like him, thirteen Low Quality Spiritual Stones was a large amount of money. Those two Rock Tailed Wall Lizards that he fought with his life on the line, because one of it was practically destroyed, they were only able to fetch him eight Low Quality Spiritual Stones.
These days, people were as calculative as demons. Spiritual Stones were hard to earn to begin with. Furthermore, after he earned Spiritual Stones, he must use them on himself.
Although Wei Suo was only a level two Divine Sea Stage cultivator, if he was to let go and absorb the Spiritual Energy within the Spiritual Stones to train, he would need at least six to seven Low Quality Spiritual Stones worth of Spiritual Energy per day. However, Wei Suo was only daring to use at the very most, one or two Low Quality Spiritual Stones every day. He was constantly in a state of extreme shortage of Spiritual Stones the entire time. Even though this was the case, Wei Suo would generally only be able to have about a dozen or so Low Quality Spiritual Stones remaining after a couple months’ time passed.
As for these dozen or so Low Quality Spiritual Stones, he cannot use them to train. He must save them as capital for business transactions in case he needs to buy something.
Yet, Wei Suo was scammed away thirteen Low Quality Spiritual Stones at once. How could Wei Suo not be pained?
“My thirteen Low Quality Spiritual Stones!”
The more Wei Suo thought of it, the more he wanted to cry. He immediately smashed this useless jar, that he exchanged thirteen Low Quality Spiritual Stones for, to the ground.
Originally, Wei Suo planned to step on the pieces of the shattered jar for some seventeen or eighteen times in order to vent his anger.
“What’s with this?”
However, Wei Suo became a little stunned and smacked his lips. This useless jar that appeared to be easily shattered into seventy or eighty pieces, was smashed to the floor by him. But surprisingly, it did not break. It seemed that only an additional crack appeared on it. Furthermore, a green light shined on the surface of this useless jar.
“Quick, quickly give me blood.”
A mournful shriek exploded in the stone house. Wei Suo immediately jumped onto the slate bed.
The green light surprisingly turned into a three-inch-tall green gowned old man. He had grass-like unkempt hair, a pointy mouth and monkey-like cheeks. He looked to Wei Suo and was smacking his lips.
“Quickly, give me some blood.”
Seeing Wei Suo who had jumped to the bed as if he had encountered malaria, this old man who was faintly floating above the useless jar appeared to be extremely despiteful.
“Ghost your freaking head! You can’t even tell the difference between ghosts and Artifact Spirits, yet you’re still squawking about.”
He once again shrieked savagely.
“Artifact, Artifact Spirit? Boss Artifact Spirit, in these past couple years, I have only enjoyed going to the Willow Back Alley. Do you know where the Willow Back Alley is? It’s a low-grade brothel. Thus, I’ve obtained some minor illness. I reckon that my blood would not be so good…”
“Who said I need your blood? Quickly go and get me some Fire Earth Dragon’s blood for me. However, based on your foolish appearance, if you cannot get a Fire Earth Dragon’s blood, then I can also make do with a Fire Scorpion’s blood.” The green gowned old man scolded impatiently.
“Boss Artifact Spirit, you’re not going to drink my blood?” Wei Suo became more relieved. “Can I ask you a question?”
“Do you know magic techniques? I know a location with a lot of Fire Earth Dragons. I can bring you over there to kill them so that you can drink their blood to your heart’s content.”
“If I know, then why would I bother to say this much rubbish with you? I would’ve rather beat you up and then go and find them to get the blood myself.”
“You’re also not capable of robbing someone’s house?”
“Nonsense! I am only an Artifact Spirit that could help my master control the Ghost Raising Jar. And now, this Ghost Raising Jar is also broken, what else could I possibly do?… Hey you, what are you doing?” The green gowned old man suddenly shrieked.
Wei Suo had jumped down from the bed and took off his waistband…
Fuu fuu fuu, Wei Suo began to whistle and then started urinating at this stunned green gowned old man. He then composedly tied his waistband back up.
“Since you can’t do anything, then how dare you act so tough before me. What Fire Earth Dragon’s blood, I have none of that. However, as for piss, I have a potful of it.”
“I…” The green gowned old man was stunned for a long time. He then began to shout in disbelief. “You actually dared to pee on me? You actually dared to pee on me?”
“What about it? What can you do? Bite me? Come, try biting me then.”
“I…, do you know how powerful I am? If others saw me, they would immediately start to cry and beg for my help. Yet you, you actually dared to pee on me?”
“Bullshit. You can’t even perform a single magic technique. What use is it for you to control that whatever piss jar? You know nothing, are you trying to scare me? Did you think I grew up by being scared? You should go out and ask around first. When I was thirteen, I already dared to go out and peek at beauties bathing.”
Wei Suo rolled his eyes in disdain. He was able to tell that this old man seemed to be unable to even leave the useless jar at all.
